Unique to New Zealand are our innovative covered large barns each with private bays, fresh water, power and a panoramic window to take in the alpine & river views while of course keeping you dry or shaded from the beautifully unpredictable West Coast Rain Forest weather. Camp facilities for your enjoyment include a modern self-catering kitchen complete with pots, pan, cutlery and crockery, comfortable lounge and dining area complete with TV and log fire, beautifully appointed spacious heated bathrooms with exceptional free showers. We also boast a large access facility, coin operated laundry facilities, washing line & Peg's free BBQ, free adult bike hire, baby bath, high chair, WIFI hot spot & internet station, DVD hire and on site dump station.
